Boots becomes first pharmacy to offer HRT medication without a prescription

Boots has begun offering hormone replacement therapy (HRT) medication without a prescription.

The Gina 10 microgram vaginal tablet is a locally acting oestrogen HRT and the only treatment available without a prescription that is clinically proven to target and treat the cause of vaginal atrophy and its associated symptoms after the menopause.  

The product was reclassified from a prescription only medicine to a pharmacy medicine by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency earlier this year following an application by license holder Novo Nordisk.  

It can now be purchased at over 590 Boots stores over the counter and on boots.com as a pharmacy medicine.  

Anne Higgins, pharmacy director at Boots, said: “Boots has been supporting women for over 170 years and today is another important milestone in women’s health. As a pharmacy medicine, Gina is more accessible to patients as they no longer need a prescription from their GP. Boots pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals and from today our pharmacy teams can offer this treatment to patients following a short consultation with no appointment needed.”
